2006 Suzuki Reno
I recently rebuilt the engine in my 2006 Suzuki Reno. And after I reinstalled the engine it ran fine. Now I have problems with the transmission. I didn’t do anything to the transmission but disconnect from the engine. Before I took it off the jack stands I made sure the drive wheel (left front) operated in drive and reverse however the right front would not turn. With the car in neutral the left wheel turns with some effort but the right wheel will not turn at all. Also with the car still on the stands when I shift the transmission from drive to neutral the left wheel stops turning almost immediately.


I would suspect that maybe the placement of the jack stands have the axle shafts hanging lower than normal. Try placing the jack stands under the control arms. Also look for anything that may have got in the way and is now binding the axle shaft. Look for that screw driver you dropped or wrench. You get the idea.

If that all checks out, confirm the brake caliper is not locked up on that side. This occurs often when a vehicle has been setting for a while. Remove the brake caliper and see if it will move.

2008 Suzuki Forenza
HI, I have a 2008 Suzuki Forenza. The other day I went to shut it off and it would not shut off. In order to get it to shut off I had to pull the positive and wiggle the fuse box that is under the hood. I unhooked the alternator and started the car and tried to shut it off but it still would not shut off. It also keeps frying the stop lamp fuse.

I have a 2005 Suzuki Forenza. I have had the car less than a year, and I estimate that there is about 156,XXX miles on it. About two months ago my speedometer and odometer quit working. Shortly thereafter, the transmission started jumping when placed in Reverse or Drive. About a week later, the car became stuck in 2nd gear. It takes off in 2nd, stays in 2nd. Most recently, the car has been stalling out when I am stopped or about to stop. If I turn it back on, it starts normal, but immediately shuts off. However, I can turn it on and give it gas to keep it on. I have had my mechanic pull codes, as the check engine light has been on since the instruments quit working. There are codes U0101- Lost communication w/trans; P0113- Intake Air Temp Sens. High Input (which my car is actually not even equipped with); P0300- Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected. I have replaced the ECM, since the original thought was it might be bad, however that has failed to solve any problems with my vehicle. What could this possibly be? Is this multiple things causing a bunch of problems or one thing causing problems?

2007 Suzuki Reno
I have a 2007 Suzuki Reno. I think it needs a tcu. Do I have to take it to the dealer if I buy a used tcu for reprogramming?

Need help trying to figure out why it starts normal and idles normal but as soon as I put it into reverse or drive it stalls. Also the slip control light is continuously flashing even though the truck won’t run when in gear. Battery went dead but it’s fully charged now. I cleaned the maf sensor whith the crc maf cleaner.any suggestions on the cause
